My 7 month old LOVES to scream and not just a little innocent scream a very loud, high pitched, ear piercing scream! He does it when theres nothing wrong even if im right in front of him playing with him and sometimes he smiles at me when i tell him to stop and other times he just screams because he wants something(which i can understand). He is a little spoiled being with mom almost 24/7, but I cant take the migraines much longer. I know theres nothing wrong with him I just REALLY need help!

I'm pretty sure he'll outgrow it. My son discovered the loud part of his voice MUCH later. He was old enough for me to explain that it wasn't nice to scream and that he needed to use his words to tell me what he wanted or needed. Something that may help you with the screaming when he wants something is teaching him a few words in baby sign language. like food, drink, milk, please, thank you, more and ball, they're easy to learn and if you are consistant, your son will be able to communicate with you long before he learns how to speak. I wish you luck!
